AirAligned Aerial Dance Group was formed in 2002 by Artistic Director Tresa Honaker. Unlike traditional circus performers AirAligned members consist of formally trained dancers. AirAligned is a theatrical aerial dance group. Productions are beautifully choreographed and athletically executed. The group has received additional training in the aerial arts from Ingrid Hoffman, Hollywood Aerial Arts and Cirque LA in Los Angeles, Trapeze Arts in Oakland and San Francisco Circus Center.
Corporate and private venues include: TEDx Sacramento, Warehouse Artist Lofts, Sacramento Convention Center, Garbeau Dinner Theater, Kennedy King Center-Chicago IL, Calgary Christian Center, Tampa Performing Arts, The Center for the Arts, The Miners Foundry, Chris Evans Productions, Twin Cities Church, as well as many private party venues, benefit performances and festival productions.
Our advanced program is an extension of our weekly classes and aims to train professional performance artists. Supporting students with the resources to audition and move forward in a career within the world of aerial dance and circus arts. Students are able to create individual performance pieces as well as actively participate in the creative process of full length productions. Students are given the resources to effectively manage a career as a performance artist. These advanced performance classes are held on the Main Stage of The Center for the Arts.
“I can truly say that AirAligned would not be what it is today if it weren’t for The Center for the Arts. The support that I had early on from George and Beth Jayne, John Bush, Marci Wolfe, Dave Irons, Paul Emery, Krista Thomas, Peter Wilson and especially Jon Blinder really allowed for a vision of mine to become a reality. This building became my home away from home and housed not only AirAligned’s full length productions, but was a space for my child’s last two years of high school, a safe place for middle school kids to go on a Friday night. It housed special birthday celebrations and the memorial of one of our very own group members Grace Callaway. The Center held me after my devastating accident 6 years ago with fund raisers and the support I needed to continue teaching aerial dance.” – Tresa Honaker – artistic director AirAligned aerial dance group.
AirAligned has grown into a professional performance group with amazing teachers that lead classes, workshops and summer camps not just in Nevada County, but all over the country.
